Welcome to the site. I haven't had to deal with this type of stuff for about 10 years, but I think this all still holds accurate.

It is true in Florida, there were no titles to ATVs before 2002.

I'm not sure the bill of sale will make a difference in regards to the VIN#. It will only determine how much sales tax you are going to pay based on the listed selling price. Now, you could try it and hope that I'm wrong. Just write in the number as you see it and don't forge anything. You don't want to commit any crimes here. Then hand them the bill of sale and see what happens. But, my past experience with Florida DMV offices is a painful one and nothing is ever easy.

I suspect they will give you a form and will demand verification of the VIN# by a police officer or motorcycle shop. They would inspect it and sign it. Just follow the instructions from the DMV and let the inspector (when you find one) write down what they inspect. If they leave a digit off because they can't read it, so be it. It's legally on them now. Not you. This filled out form is what they will use for verification, since they have no info about it.

This whole process the DMV puts us through is to accomplish two things. 1. Prevent theft. 2. To get your money. (this is the biggest one).

Let me know how it goes and good luck!

Hello guys, and thanks admin for adding me. I bought a 1997 wolverine that I thought about using in State parks with an orv permit.

The problem is I bought it off someone who had no title and only gave me a bill of sale. He claimed that these bikes were not titled before 2002. But I cannot read the last character of the vin number to apply for a title and the bill of sale is missing  the last character. What if I guess the wrong character and have the seller draft up a new bill of sale? Can they determine the dmv that the last character on the vin in incorrect although  bike never registered?

Welcome to the site. I have little experience with SxS, but I do know the rules at Croom are very outdated and should be rewritten. The rules are not friendly at all to the current off road vehicle owner. And, unfortunately, I don't think anybody there cares. If I lived closer to Ocala, that would be my "go to" place.

Thanks for the reply.  I been looking online and it looks like Ocala is the place to go.  From what I understand, SxS are allowed at Big Scrub as well as others.  It also looks like Croom allows up to 50" low pressure tires which my pioneer 500 has.  However, I read somewhere that they only allow vehicles that can be straddled.  Doesnt make sense because for safety reasons, my little SxS has a roll cage with seatbelts whereas regular ATVs dont. 

I am surprised I haven't heard from other members with a bit of knowledge of Central Florida trails for SxSs.  A few months back I was driving to Zephyrhills from Clermont, and saw a bunch of ATVs and UTVs parked in a parking lot getting ready to ride.  Can't remember the name of the road, but I may have to retrace my drive and find out the deal.

I ride Croom but they do not permit side by sides so no help to you.    I have never been asked to show proof my 11 year old took a safety class at either Ocala or Croom.  I mostly ride on 2300 acres in north Florida now that I have permission to access.  Florida is not a friendly state to off road riding in my opinion.   Good luck and hope you find a place to have fun,  I usually make trips to Hat Field McCoy or Windrock TN because they have off road friendly places to ride.

We used to go to Ocala 15+ years ago and ride our KTMs through some of the trails.  Now, I have no idea where to go since it looks like there are tons of regulations.  I've been searching online, but it seems like it is not cut and dry. 

So far, I understand that you need your vehicle registration, OHV pass (not sure if a yearly covers all state trails), my 12 year old needs an ATV safety course, and riders have to wear helmets, etc. 

So, what all do I need to take the SxS with my son over to places close to Clermont.  I am assuming the closest ones are Ocala, Umatilla, and Croom.  I would hate to show up only to get a fine for not having all of the necessary paperwork and equipment.

Thanks in advance.  Oh, we also used to go to an abandoned citrus field off of 27, south of 192.  Cant remember exactly where it was.
